Expected learning outcomes (ELOs) are
requirements that students must achieve by graduation. They can
be achieved by incremental attainment over the duration of
courses in the program. Basing on the vision and mission of
Mahidol University and Faculty of Science, Mahidol University,
the program objectives ELOs are clearly designed with feedback
from all stakeholders including labor market, alumni, graduates,
academic staffs and students. ELOs cover the knowledge and
intellectual, practical and transferable skills over 3 knowledge
blocks of the program and help students to have right directions
and awareness for self-studying in the learning process. ELOs
are finalized among the lecturers, students and different
stakeholders via meetings at the department level.
ELO1 Explain the general concepts and
theories related to the field of biotechnology in systematic
manner at international level.
ELO2 Conduct the research properly
according to the international accepted methodology by following
rules, guidelines, and regulations set by experts in the
biotechnology fields as well as being aware of safety and
potential benefits of research which will consequently affect
people and environment.
ELO3 Survey, investigate, justify, analyse
information to solve any problem systematically. Search and
choose appropriate information to support their life-long
ELO4 Conclude key biotechnology principles.
Analyse and evaluation their knowledge with scientific
information and evident together with applying their knowledge
for their career.
ELO5 Design experiments to meet their
research target by themselves
ELO6 Discuss and conclude their
experimental results appropriately and suggest strategies or
process for research improvement
Collect, analyse and process scientific data together
with utilising appropriate IT resources
Use appropriate IT in order to survey and exchange
scientific information in form of writing, lecturing, as well as
ELO9 Be a good team leader and member. Have
positive thought and motivation together with being open-mined
when solving any problem sensibly.
ELO10 Demonstrate professional ethics and
have sense of well-being and responsibility to their community
The relations between ELOs and Program
